Columbus

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia.
Explore hidden gems such as Sharon Woods Metro Park and Rock Bridge. Take a break from the city and head to Hayden Falls Park and Cantwell Cliffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Columbus: Zipline (in Rockbridge), Old Man's Cave (in Logan) and Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (in Powell). There's lots more to do: get curious at Center of Science and Industry (COSI), see the interesting displays at Wagner-Hagans Auto Museum, and delve into the lush surroundings at Blendon Woods Park.

In July, daily temperatures in Columbus can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
